@MrHenko I agree. But I’ve basically lost all connections to relatives after quitting FB - both my wife, me and the kid who still lives at home quit within a month of each other so we don’t know much what other relatives do. Same for most of friends etc.

@jemostrom I can relate to that. It's been many years during which neither me nor my fiancé has had Facebook and we've certainly missed things. For regular updates on life Instagram seems to work more or less as well but a lot of people uses Facebook for events. There have been parties that we haven't been invited to simply because our friends didn't really think about the fact that we don't have Facebook.

That being said, those things aren't solved by my cross-posting but at least I'm not creating my own semi closed-off space where I post things and forget about the people who don't want or can't use RSS feeds or similar things.

@MrHenko Yeah, it's a good idea to cross-post for that purpose ... I wish I had done it when I used FB. Ahh, well. Not a problem now.
